Holes need to align quite accurately - which I didn't do that good a job :(

I’ve never done leathercraft (leatherlook hippo is made of vinyl tablecloth material…I’m not sure how similar or different it is compared to working with leather) before, and I don’t have the necessary tools to finish off the edges nicely. But it’s a fun thing to try. And I need to investigate into how to sew vinyl/leather with sewing machine, what needle I need etc.Β
